MESQUITE CREEK (ARCHER COUNTY)
MESQUITE CREEK (Archer County). Mesquite Creek rises just north of the Young county line in extreme southwestern Archer County (at 33°24' N, 98°50' W), passes through Lake Olney and adjoining Lake Cooper, and runs north for a total distance of thirteen miles to its mouth on the South Fork of the Little Wichita River, 6½ miles southwest of Archer City (at 33°30' N, 98°45' W). The surrounding terrain is flat with local shallow depressions and is surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwood trees, conifers, and grasses. The area has served as crop and range land.
